Went out of International Harbor (Friendsville) for a couple of hours a little after 3:00 PM. Water temp 47-48. Fish showing up all over the screen! Mainly threw a 4 inch Tequila Sunrise Slider worm. Nary a bite. Finally pulled out the old reliable: Roostertail; figured I'd at least catch a bluegill. Zip. Course with a bluebird sky, front came through, 21 degrees last night....... Quit laughing, I had to come up with some kind of excuse! As always, its good just to get out there. Wouldn't trade it for anything. Wood

Hate to hear you had a bad day catching them. Thanks anyway for posting your report. Can't get them everytime! Better luck next time, at least you were on the water today.

Hard days fishing call for desprite measures. I launch at IH some, maybe I'll get to talk with you there. I'm normally in a gray GMC. If you see me give me a shout.

Sorry about the 0 but what was the color of the water were you fished? We fished up by L'ville and it was muddy. Thanks for the report.

My buddy and I launched out of Ish Creek yesterday around 1 p.m. and fished until dark. We first fished that rocky point at the mouth of the creek on the right side at the main channel. I had a couple of hits on a DT 16 but couldn't get a hookset. We then made our way up the left side of the channel going towards the dam and fished every little pocket we came across. We fished everywhere from 2 ft. of water to 50 ft. of water with no luck. We threw cranks, spinnerbaits, worms, jigs, jigged spoons, suspending jerkbaits, other soft plastics, and I think my buddy even tied on a chatterbait at one point. We didn't catch squat! Saw tons of fish on the ol' "fishfinder," but they didn't want anything to do with us. Water temps ranged from 45-48 degrees and the water was fairly clear.



The Knoxville News Sentinel says to fish rock banks and points in 6-10 ft. of water with a black/blue jig with deep water close by. I'd like to find the S.O.B. who writes that column!
